Joy & Success

posted by The MEGA Coach

From the I Ching or Book of Changes by Brian Browne Walker;

The I Ching is more than just a book, it is a living, breathing oracle, an all seeing teacher.

It has survived for thousands of years and is regarded as the foundation text of Chinese wisdom and philosophy.  It was instrumental to sages such as Confucius.

 

Those who practice innocence, acceptance and detachment inherit joy in this world.

 

We often see around us how forcible effort brings about what appears to be progress.  Our egos tempt us to believe that these gains are lasting and valuable, but the truth is otherwise.  Whatever is won by the desirous, ambitious, demanding manipulations of the ego will soon be lost.  Others can always be temporarily browbeaten into doing things our way, but only hearts won by friendliness and sincere goodwill are true over time.

 

Joy and success cannot be forced or stolen.  They are achieved gradually, but steadily, by those who relate correctly to others and to the Higher Power.  To relate correctly means to steadfastly practice innocence, detachment, acceptance, modesty and gentleness.  Life is full of shortcuts, but this is the only route that leads to true joy.

 

Join with like-minded friends now in the discussion and contemplation of higher things.  If we engage in an ongoing conversation about proper principles with our friends, our relationship to truth is steady and our ego cannot seduce us into the doubt, fear and anxiety that lead away from joy.
 

In your heart, be firm in holding to what is good and honest and correct.  In your thoughts and actions, be gentle and accepting.  Those who persevere on this path will meet with true joy and lasting success.

 

Prosperously yours,

:) Lee

    Thank you for reminding me that to be in acceptance is to be in the moment. That removes worry and stress and thus leaves the door open for all kinds of opportunities but most of all to experience a feeling of joy. After all the Universe has our order and knows what we want When we go to a restaurant and place an order we do not keep asking the waiter where it is, is it coming yet. We tend to do that, however, with our order (goals) in life. So to be in acceptance and detachment means to believe that my goals are being met and on their way.
    Again thank you for that reminder. I needed to hear that today as I have been a little stressed out about my “order” not having showed up yet.
    I wish you and all your readers are very blessed joyous day!

Grasp The Opportunity
“Your success in life does not altogether depend upon natural ability; it also depends upon determination to grasp the opportunity that is presented to you.  Opportunities in life come by creation, not by chance.  They are either created now, or were created at some time in the recent past, or t

The Dalai Lama - Our Prime Purpose
It is in giving when we truly receive and open our hearts.  A good way to transform a negative or challenging situation around is by giving and forgiving.  We are all spiritual beings in human form and we all make mistakes. One of our lessons here is to learn to forgive ourselves and others
